Sorry no, ether take it to a shop, or do a recovery on your pc which sets everything back to default. Reach out to the pc manufacturer on how to do so.

Allowing someone to take remote control of your computer is potentially very dangerous. There are many people who would be more than willing to do this, but they would be serving their purposes, not yours. Every day people are called by individuals offering to remotely connect to their computer and solve (for a price) some imagined or real problem. Malicious software is installed which is often difficult and expensive to remove. I have received many such calls.

So beware.

The best any of us can do is direct you to reference materials describing safe legitimate ways to reset/recover passwords, as per rule #6 in Windows 7 Help Forums - Forum Rules.

For the safety of everyone involved we can't and aren't going to be able to help you beyond that.
